Flight from Chicago OHare was delayed an hour. In Istanbul, ran to Cluj connection. Arrived 15 minutes before flight time. Flight was closed out & no one around. Went to airline help station & was told I could go to Cluj 35 hours later. Requested reroute & agent was very helpful rerouting through Bucharest. Arrived 11:30 pm in Cluj about 15 hrs late but relieved to have arrived
Pros: "The customer service, the seats were comfortable and the food was great"
Pros: "Love love love this airlines! I wish the US carriers were like this!"
Pros: "The entertainment was adequate and there were multiple snacks/meals. The bread rolls were warm. And they provided towelettes for wiping hands after meals."
Cons: "The crew could have been more considerate, and the Economy seats were even tighter than usual! There was no leg room and even without the person in front of me reclining, the seat back was hitting my knees. The passenger next to me had longer legs and was much worse off. The food was very poor."
Pros: "The Turkish Airline crew are treat you as guests not as customers."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"
Pros: "Food was good. Able to get lots of water. Wide variety of movies/TV shows. Was happy with the service overall. Would compare them to Delta for international flights."
Cons: "Announcements weren't always clear but didn't really matter."
Pros: "crew and service are great."
Cons: "the last leg, Istanbul to DC was completely full. i was seating at the back (33K). after the meal, i wanted to recline and the man behind me started yelling as he has water on his table. i apologized and asked if i can recline the seat and he yelled again and said i cannot recline my seat. i talked to the flight attendant and she wanted to move me to a middle seat. i declined and eventually the man said i can recline my seat. but i mean, seriously, i got yelled at for trying to recline my seat and got no apologies from anyone."
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "Crew and service One of the flight attendant saved my daughter when she Was chucking on nuts , they went above and beyond Just duty and did everything in their power to save her"
The flight has been delayed and arrived 30 minutes late. I had a very tough connection in Frankfurt, I had to run to catch my flight to Newark and Lufthansa was absolutely not helpful. They just told me I have to hurry but didn't tell me where I should go , I was very disappointed
My only complaint would be the rather tight leg room in the crammed seats. Other than that, the experience was professional and smooth and well-run on the part of Lufthansa and the cabin crew.
Everything was great except the boarding process is very disorganized (especially for a German company). The pre boarding lounges were average at best. Otherwise, everything else was excellent!
No priority boarding or dedicated checkin for premium economy Plane over heated Terrible food — stale dessert No snacks available Drink glasses minuscule Will avoid Lufthansa flights in future. Literally the worst value ever.
Hands down the worst travel experience period. Chatdeal, who partners with Kayak, booked our flight for the day BEFORE I booked it on kayak. All of our travel information in Kayak and on the Kayak app showed we'd be leaving on Oct 7th, however Chatdeal made all our travel plans starting on the 6th. I am not flighting with Chatdeal to get a refund as our entire trip which I've been planning for since March of this year has been ruined. This trip was intended for my husband and I to finally meet my in law's in India for this first time and his first time seeing his family since COVID started. DO NOT BOOK ANY FLIGHT WHERE CHATDEAL IS THE AGENT! This company has ruined a year's worth of planning and is trying to say I it's our fault and not theirs.
Cons: "The food was overcooked for dinner and breakfast was a veggie wrap which was soggy and strange. Bring food with you!"
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out about our flight. We've flown many airlines, Aeroflot, British Air, Delta, Iceland Air and KLM recently. Lufthansa was right in there with the middlet of the pack, with the exception of Iceland Air, which would be at the bottom, but they make no pretenses. The seats, even in the basic economy, which we had,reclined and were comfortable; good legroom. Food and drink offerings were standard. Amounts were small, but everything was the right temperature. Restrooms were clean and well equipped. Movie offerings, not many newer releases. Nothing like Sky news, so you couldn't check weather or current events. Crew was courteous and attentive,"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfort left much to be desired. First off, the equipment was not ready; we waited 45 min. to board after we got to the gate (early) and due to turbulence over the Atlantic, the pilots could not make up the time. We are senior citizens. We, along with about 25 others in our category, responded to the call for us to get in line to board, stand for 30 min. The gate personnel did not provide any information that boarding was NOT imminent at that point, so you had to stand up to keep your place. Finally, once the boarding for people needing assistance began, we got to choose between using 2 flights of stairs (a faster way to get into the plane) or an elevator to board the plane. (Hello! We have trouble with things like stairs; don't you know that?) The elevator accommodated one wheelchair and 2 or 3 people at a time. More waiting in the jetway to get down to the plane! The whole boarding process took 90 min. from the time we stood up to the time they closed the doors. Bad grades for the the cleaning crew making us wait so long, for the gate personnel for keeping us in the dark and the disorganized process boarding. Nobody cared about our discomfort, not what we would have expected from LH. Consequently, we've revised our opinion of Luthansa. Maybe next time we'll take BA."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, never bothered sleeping people, and had a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing, best transatlantic flight I’ve had so far honestly."
Pros: "TSA in Philadelphia were very rude and aggressive. This is not Lufthansa's fault, but LH can at least pass on word that their passengers were hassled unnecessarily by TSA personnel."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Middle seats had little useful legroom due to conduit"
Cons: "The plane was hot, muggy, and had little airflow with no user movable nozzles. Lots of people sweating for 6+hours."
The family sitting beside me had a one year old constantly crying and another kid kicking my chair. I understand it’s nothing the airlines could do or it’s fault
Pros: "Everything was easy and the crew were really nice."
Cons: "Both transatlantic flights I had requested lactose-free meal options, neither of which happened."
Cons: "Transferring to another airline that was “serviced by”. British Airways ended up being 2 hours of stress, confusion and running to our gate. This should be made apparent while booking. Had to go through security 3 times in Toronto."
Cons: "The arrival point in Dublin airport is like a ramshackle passageway. A good walk from Terminal 2(supposwd arrival point) A Swiz by Are lingus. Ruined all the good points."
Pros: "They provided a lot of leg room and we arrived about an hour ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Would it be too much to ask for a free beverage for the almost 3 hour flight between Dublin and Rome?"
Cons: "We got to gate after standing in the lobby 30 min prior to take off and they wouldn’t let us in gate . We were in the air lingus lounge waiting for the flight and the gate attendant said she called our name on speaker which she did not . We get to gate and they say we are no longer able to board the plane"
Pros: "Very pleasant, competent, attentive, efficient crew."
Cons: "I did not like the delay in departing for Frankfurt-- missed the rental car and a meeting scheduled with a friend. Lufthansa for Frankfurt managed to depart on time. I know this may be out of your control."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"
Cons: "The booking left no time to make it to the next flight. Had to purchase a separate flight last minute."
Not a great selection of food and the snacks were quite pricey. No entertainment at all, not even a magazine to read, but hey, it's a budget airline. The flight departed on time and arrived on time, so no complaints.
Disorganized service and aging equipment paired with inexperienced personnel. This was not what my husband and I paid for.
It didn't happen; Sun Express cancelled the flight, even more, the route to that destination. I got a full refund, which of course was not enough to buy a new ticket so close to the date of travel
Checkin with agent-no eye contact, no words. No smile. Agents late to open checkin counter. Flight was full. Child in back of my seat pushing with legs and feet, thus moving the backrest of my chair. No attendants during the flight, only before takeoff and at landing. Plane ride itself was smooth and quick. Good pilot landing at airport.
Had extra leg room seats which were really good, no entertainment on flight but had downloaded stuff to watch from Netflix, good and drink was expensive in the flight
Our seats smelled like someone puked on them and they were not cleaned up. It was nauseating the entire flight. Plus their planes are not comfortable. We don’t recommend them.
Long lines to check in at 5 am on October 22 and no nowhere to sit at Izmir airport waiting for the Munich bound flight ticket check in to open.
They literally destroyed our luggage, 3 out of 4 wheels broke, the luggage had some sort of oil (smelled like olive oil) all over the luggage and even damaged some of the items inside (as the luggage cracked everywhere this oily substance got in).
The WiFi didn’t work throughout the whole flight. So we couldn’t access the entertainment and we couldn’t even access the English food menu since the QR code only works if you’re on the plane’s WiFi.
Crew was helpful; food was horrible AND expensive; they had us wait on the tarmac on a bus for nearly 30 minutes; the flight departed more than 90 minutes late and weather was NOT an issue. Miserable really, but at least my luggage arrived and we didn’t die - could have been worse I guess.
Cons: "First of all, we've had to pay registration fee 55 Euros each, just because we didn't check in online! What the hell is that? Secondly, the seats that I paid for were not available! Lousy service..."
Cons: "Going on time without delay, more staff to avoid long lines"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Checking in had insufficient staff to deal with the new baggage policy. This is purely another money making scheme and not anything to do with the customer experience. Not only are there additional costs to baggage but also because of queues was insufficient time in duty free had to purchase food on the flight, no doubt part of Ryanair profit makeing scheme. Flight was still delay 30mins"
Pros: "Hubo una persona discapacitada a la se necesitaba ayuda. Y le dijeron prioridad para sentarse primero en su silla del avión. Entonces las azafatas inmediatamente dejaron pasar los pasajeros creando así un bloqueo en medio del avión que tomó mucho tiempo."
Cons: "La comida estuvo bien. El servicio a la silla fue rapido.. Aunque los precios no son los mas económicos"
Cons: "Flight was late. No announcements that it was going to be late. Nobody around to answer questions. Would not fly again as the fare was not really any cheaper and the service much worse than other airlines that we have flown. Nothing!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Filthy seats and pull down trays and chaos boarding as people being asked to change seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Baggage policy is very unclear. Boarding procedures are slow and inefficient. Seats are uncomfortable. Air didn't function and the flight was very hot."
Cons: "No staff in Treviso airport to help. There was 5 or 6 flights of people squashed into a small basement area which could barely hold 2 flights of people. It was unbearable crowded conditions with 2 airport staff who didn't reply when asked anything. When we found out flight was severely delayed there was no staff who would receive our claims for our rights under eu261 and got our food ouchers 1hour and 25 minutes late - impeding on our rights"
Cons: "They charged us $160 in fees for not checking in online two hours before the flight, even though I was never told anything about this. They also charged us expensive fees to check our bags. I felt like I was robbed. Terrible airline."
Cons: "Horrible boarding. Horrible seats. Garbage sandwiches for a fee. Zero entertainment. Not even a seat pocket. Toilet was disgusting, no wipers. Hyper stressed. Glad it's over, baby! Never ever, again."
